Cutting-edge UK distributor Tartan Video announced today (Mar 15) that it will cease supplying retailers with DVD copies of The Last Horror Movie.

The award-winning 2003 film has become involved in the trial of a teen in the UK, who, itis claimed, murdered his two friends. The trial has heard that the accused allegedly watched the film repeatedly in the four days leading up to the deaths. The teen has admitted the killings but denied the charge of murder.

A spokesman for Tartan said: 'In the light of such tragic events it is only right that Tartan ceases to profit from the sale of the film. We are taking these actions as a mark of respect for the families of all concerned, to whom we extend our deepest sympathies.'
